You wouldn’t accelerate and brake at the same time in your car, then why do it in your building? Ecopilot® integrates intelligently with existing building management systems by utilizing real time data, local weather forecasts, and an in-depth knowledge of the thermodynamics of the building. With this intelligent integration, Ecopilot® can optimize set point values to intelligently coordinate the operation of heating, ventilation and cooling systems.
A good indoor climate is important and a greener building is a healthier building. Ecopilot® creates the ideal balance in indoor atmosphere as a result of utilizing the buildings' thermal signaure to best guide the control of the ventilation, heating, and cooling systems. As a result, Ecopilot® improves the working environment and productivity – an important parameter for the well-being, health and efficiency of humans.
Most importantly, Ecopilot®delivers a more pleasant and quality assured indoor climate. Research shows that an Ecopilot® building has increased occupant productivity by 10% and decreased sick days by 5%. In 1,000 installations, Ecopilot® has delivered savings, regardless of the design of their buildings. With Ecopilot® we have increased the average energy savings for our customers by 22% (heating), 28% (cooling) and 13% (electricity). The average ROI is 3 years.
The cleanest kilowatt hour is the kilowatt never used. Ecopilot® reduces energy consumption by collaborating building systems rather than constantly having them work against each other. A more pleasant indoor climate is created and maintained, costs are reduced, all while reducing energy usage and carbon emissions. To date, Ecopilot® installations have reduced CO2 emissions by more than 100,000 tonnes per year which is equivalent to approximately removing 21,413 cars off the road for a whole year.
